Carolina Arango - Sept 2016 Viewers' Choice

 I have been dancing for 7 consecutive years at Dance Creations Dance Academy under the direction of Maria Alonso in Miami, Florida. There I study Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, Lyrical, Acro, Open Technique, Hip Hop, Ballroom, and Pointe. My favorites of them all are Contemporary and Open Technique. They allow me to express what I can't through words, through movement and it's very enjoyable. I'd like to acknowledge Johnny Romero for creating this dance "Glory" for me for the 2015-2016 season. Also, for how hard he has been pushing me and teaching me on this journey. 

I think the greatest benefit of competitions are that you get to acknowledge other dancer's passion for the artistry. It's just amazing to see what other people can do with their bodies to express movement. It's also great to be surrounded by other people and showcase what you are good at, and in part inspire them as well. My future plans are very blurry as I do not know what I'd like to become. I only know that I would like to keep dancing as long as possible :)
